Blog | Kazuki Masaki gets it all right and takes the Cup

Hi Everyone,

This is how the last races of the season went for me.

Misano Race 1:
I started 2nd on the grid and got off to a good start, I pushed hard from the very beginning of the race but 3 riders caught up with me so I stayed in second or third position throughout the race, Unfortunately.

Aragon Race 1:
I started in 2nd position, again, I gave it everything from the beginning of the race, my lap times weren't so great so I pushed harder to stay ahead of the large group at the front of the race.

In the last lap, I overtook the leader but lost the lead again quickly, it was a see-saw battle but in the last straigh, I got into the leader's slipstream and could over take him to get the win and the championship, I was elated!!

Aragon Race 2
Having achieved victory and the Cup in Race 1, I felt I could open the throttle more and take more risks than usual, in the middle of race I couldn't avoid a crash in front of me and I crashed myself. I managed to get back into the race, I gave it my best shot and could get the fastest lap for the race!!

It's been a great season, full of ups and downs but I could achieve my ultimate goal this year!! I wish to thank the Red Bull Rookies Cup, sponsors and my mechanics. Without their support, I could never have achieved this result,

Thank you so much!!
